"Cum Data Fuerit," English translation of the Decree of the Sacred Oriental Congregation in Rome, originally published in Latin on March 1, 1929 in reference to Eastern Catholics in the USA. The decree, which was approved by Pope Pius XI on February 9, 1929, established norms for the American Eastern Catholic Churches (at that time comprising what are now known as Ukrainian and Ruthenian Catholic Churches) in 43 articles. Article 12 was the most controversial, requiring that "priests of the Greek-Ruthenian Rite who wish to go to the United States of North America and stay there, must be celibates." This English translation of the Latin original was published in 1955 in "Temporary Diocesan Statutes of the Byzantine Rite Apostolic Exarchy of Philadelphia, PA., U.S.A.," Volume 1, pp. 11-24. Articles 38, 39 and 40 are omitted in this edition of Cum Data Fuerit due to a change in matrimonial law with the publication of Crebrae allatae in 1949.
